Phase 1A - Extended Atmospheric Pressure and Temperature Experiment

From XinaBox Wiki!
Jump to: navigation, search

Level: Novice

Overview: In this experiment you need to measure the atmospheric pressure over a extended period of 24 hours to a week (at your own discretion) within a room, noting the temperature over the same period too and observe the relationship between atmospheric pressure and temperature

Aim: Observe the relationship between atmospheric pressure and temperature.

Apparatus: ☒CHIPS:

  • SW01 - Advanced Weather Sensor
  • OD01 - OLED Display
  • IP01 - USB Programmer
  • CW01 - Wi-Fi
  • ☒CHIP connectors
  • A USB power source, for example an iPhone wall socket adapter or battery pack/power bank
  • Laptop or Desktop (to display dashboard)
  • Internet connection


Steps:

  1. Assemble all the ☒CHIPS you need for this experiment
  2. Make sure to connect your IP01 to a power source
  3. Your CW01 ☒CHIP will automatically connect to the Wi-Fi (or see 1st Time Setup)
  4. The data you need to complete your experiment will automatically update and display on your OD01 - OLED Display and upload to the dashboard
  • Note that changing numbers of people in the room will influence the temperature readings
  • After data collection, view and graph the data on the dashboard (Using the Dashboard), by graphing temperature on the x-axis and atmospheric pressure on the y-axis, and then draw conclusions on the relationship between Atmospheric Pressure and Temperature based on the trend observed
